Former Bowie High School standout Brandon Workman didn’t pitch – even in a relief role – for the Boston Red Sox during the past few days.
Earlier this week manager John Farrell determined Workman wouldn’t make any more starts for the Red Sox this season, which concludes on Sunday as Boston plays the American League East-rival New York Yankees.
Steven Wright was expected to start Friday, Joe Kelly on Saturday and Clay Buchholz on Sunday.
Workman could work out of the Red Sox bullpen, but that’s not a given.
This season, Workman has compiled a record of 1-10 with an earned-run average of 5.17 in 87 innings pitched, which includes 15 starts and 19 overall appearances.
The Bowie High School 2007 graduate has allowed 57 runs (50 earned) on 88 hits, 11 of them home runs. Workman has struck out 70 while walking 36.
Workman has also pitched in the minor leagues this season for Triple-A Pawtucket. Overall, he has thrown 148-1/3 innings between the levels.
